Wow! Can you believe its Easter?? Where did the winter go? I’m so glad it’s over as much as I like it but it’s time to say goodbye and move on to those April showers and May flowers.

I started planning my Easter meal and one thing I found out about my family is they are not the traditional bunch in fact we are like the Brady Bunch! We are a blended family and along with that comes all different ideas of what they think an Easter meal should be. I found out quickly from the crew that not only do we not have to have the traditional ham dinner we can have whatever we want and this year it’s’ going to be Crusted Parmesan Chicken over Rice. Well along with that you should serve some sides and I wanted to serve a nice refreshing spring salad that adds color to the table and screams spring at the same time. So, wouldn’t you know I found three of them and yes I can’t make up my mind which one I want for Easter. Well this crazy family decided why have one, so now I’m down to picking two. So I decided to do this video so that I could get a preview and sample and then decide. Here are my top 3 picks.
